    I'm looking to pick up a gallon of glass cleaner and I'm considering Meguair's, Chemical guys, Adam's, and Mark V Window Sheen. Meguiar's and Chemical guys seem to be the most cost effective but I'm open to spending more if one product is dramatically better. Any and all input is appreciated.

    I like Stoners Invisible Glass and Mothers Glass Cleaner I find both work equally well and are available locally which is good. I also heard that Zep Ammonia Free Glass Cleaner is good plus its a 32:1 dilution so a gallon will last forever and its cheap.

    i was using meguiars for a while, then came across a bottle of 1Z windscreen...and now i reach for that all the time.

    Another vote for Meguiar's Glass Concentrate, 1 gallon of concentrate makes 11 gallons of solutions. Oh yeah, it smells great too.

    Stoners. Works great, available OTC, and cheap in a 4-pack at Costco

    Meguiars concentrate from the detailier line is a hidden gem.

    Easily the cheapest, most effective glass cleaner.

    I've heard heard ONR @ 6:1 is good as well, I use that sometimes on the interior but have never really used one on the exterior during a wash. Water and soap works good for me.

    I have used the following ones:

    CRC glass&dash
    Windex w/vinegar

    Meg's is the most cost effective, but none stand out more than others.
    If I had to choose, maybe the windex and meg's.

    I have used stoners, sprayaway, adams, finishkare, onr...just ordered meguirars pro line.

    favorite was by far finishkare 228 but I can't find it anymore.
    ONR does work great. use it daily on customer's cars for interior windows.
    i ordered a small bottle of adams and it was good, ordered a gallon and for some reason didn't experience the same ease of use. not sure if there was an issue with the product or what.
    haven't tried meg's yet

    No love for Lusso?
    I can't really say I've tried any others though.

    I like QDs TBH in a pinch. I think alot comes down to technique but I like the slickness QDs leave.

    1Z windscreen clear for exterior windows (absolutely love this stuff!!! Just not a fan of the smell)
    Mainly use Lusso for interior windows, but have recently switched to Prima Clarity.

    I've tried most of the glass cleaners out there at one time or another.. like everyone says, they all pretty much do what they are supposed to do.

    I will disagree with the Meguiars concentrate statements though... I do NOT like this glass cleaner. We used to use it at work, but it was streaking constantly. I now use it at home in my bathroom etc. While it does smell great, I just find that I have to use a lot of it to get it to work properly. Even if a window looks spotless at first, I found that after returning to a car after a few minutes there would always be a streak somewhere. And as far as cutting through nicotine or grease, it just cant cut it as well as some others do.
    If your looking for cost effective and bulk, I'd give the Zeps a shot.

    ^ Just curious, if you used Lusso mainly for interior windows, why the switch to Prima Clarity? Reason i ask is because i have never tried either one as i would like one
    brand to suffice for interior and exterior.
